Cal Poly Drops Blue-Green Rivalry Matchup at No. 68 UC Santa Barbara

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. – Freshman Louise Oxnevad (right) rallied for a singles victory at the No. 1 position, but the win counted as Cal Poly's only triumph of Saturday afternoon as the Mustang women's tennis program dropped a 6-1 Blue-Green rivalry decision against No. 68 UC Santa Barbara on Robertson Gym Courts.

UC Santa Barbara opened the match by sweeping the doubles point. Cal Poly junior Ane McPike teamed with Oxnevad at the No. 1 position, but fell against Priscilia Garcia and Paola Cos, 8-5. Mustang juniors Jen Cornea and Gabrielle Gatewood fell by the same score at No. 2 versus Kiersten Meehan and April Scatliffe before the Gauchos wrapped up the point at No. 3 as Erica Cano and Stacy Yam bested Cal Poly junior Kathryn Webb and freshman Haley Kepler, 8-2.

Oxnevad returned in singles action to top Scatliffe, 1-6, 6-4, 10-8. At No. 2, Cornea recovered from an opening-set loss before falling against Meehan, 6-0, 2-6, 10-6. After winning her opening set at No. 3 versus Cos, McPike surrendered a 5-7, 6-2, 10-3 decision. Mustang freshman Anna Klavins was swept by Yam at No. 4 (6-0, 6-0) before Kepler suffered a 6-0, 6-1 defeat at No. 5 versus Cano. UC Santa Barbara's Karolina Kecki won her match at No. 6 by default.

Cal Poly (3-15, 1-5) completes the home portion of its 2013 spring dual match schedule when hosting Cal State Northridge at Mustang Courts on Sunday, April 7. Match time is set for 10 a.m.
